I will discuss the application of multi-frequency EPR to study the static and dynamic properties of a family of mononuclear Ln(III) (Ln = Ho or Tb) nanomagnets encapsulated in polyoxometallate (POM) cages. The encapsulation offers the potential for spintronics applications on surfaces or in devices, as it preserves the intrinsic properties of the nanomagnet outside of a crystal. A large magnetic anisotropy arises due to a splitting of the Hund’s coupled angular momentum (J = L + S) ground state in the POM ligand field. High-frequency EPR studies for the Ho(III) compound (J = 8) reveal an anisotropic eight line spectrum corresponding to transitions within the lowest mJ = ± 4 doublet, split by a hyperfine interaction with the I = 7/2 Ho nucleus. Meanwhile, X-band studies reveal the presence of a large tunneling gap (Δ∼9 GHz) within the mJ = ± 4 doublet. Spin-echo measurements allow studies of the coherent spin dynamics, including Rabi oscillations. Remarkably long T2 times are found, even for the most concentrated samples. It is postulated that this is due to the large gap, Δ, which provides an optimal operating point for coherent manipulations at X-band such that the quantum dynamics are relatively insensitive to dipolar fields.
